DIVISIONAL MEETINGS OF THE APA

The Society for the Philosophic Study of the Contemporary Visual Arts (SPSCVA) sponsors presentations at its divisional sessions , which are held in conjunction with the Eastern, Central and Pacific Division Meetings of the American Philosophical Association. Papers may address any topic that involves the connection between philosophy and the visual arts: film, photography, video, or other aesthetic media. The Society also welcomes proposals for panels, author-meets-critics, and other special sessions, as well as volunteers to serve as panel chairs and commentators. Presentations should be 20-25 minutes (10-12 pages) in length. The Society typically holds two sessions at each of the APA divisional meetings. Electronic submission of papers as e-mail attachments is required.
